Case study: Country house style

IMG_8009My client, who loves the Laura Ashley, country house look wanted to up date her sitting room but maintain a traditional feel.    As the room is south facing & has large patio doors out to the garden the furnishings are liable to fade in the strong sunlight; my client chose these textured vertical blinds from my made to measure selection to protect the furnishings & maintain a cooler temperature on sunny days.  The room was newly wallpapered in elegant Colefax & Fowler Elwick Stripe.

The client had a heavily shaped pelmet which we took apart & re-made into a straight more contemporary shape. The edge was highlighted with a two tone berry shade braid which also picks up on the colour of the stunning new sofa.  The same braid was used to embellish cushions.

Although it was a long wait for the tie backs to arrive from the French, high end trimmings company, Houles, my client was truly delighted with her choice. These tie backs are made up of loops which are available individually in a choice of colours to create your own original tie backs in any length.
